On the 25th of February we had the honour of visiting Áras an Uachtaráin and meeting Michael D. Higgins, President of Ireland.
It was a very special day for our young trainees who attended looking very dapper indeed. The President took his time to meet everyone personally and chatted about their experiences on board. He was very impressed with the amazing young people we are privileged to work with and he even expressed an interest in going on a sailing voyage himself! We will hold him to his words!
Michael D. Higgins, the President of Ireland, is a patron of Sail Training Ireland, with whom we are affiliated as a member organisation.
A group of former participants on Safe Haven Voyages attend the Aras: Ram, Guelord, Monica, Idriss and Victor.
